There's nothing edgy about mocking Down Syndrome, it's just cuntish behaviour.
Hmm, I've just been trying to find any of the material about this, but can't find any. The strange thing is, Frankie Boyle, is normally quite politically correct, despite his love of causing offense. It would be strange for him to have a go at people with Down's syndrome, rather than the way society deals with people with Down's syndrome.
Having said that, some of his stand-up (though I've never seen him in the flesh) is pretty poor, his TV shows have been far better.
It was a comment about Katie Price's son.

I don't think that was what G was talking about, because the bit you posted is obviously not about Katie Price's son it is about how Katie Price has monetized her son, along with the rest of her family, to make a living.
I think there was some spat about a joke he told that caused the parent of a Down's child to walk out of a show and complain.
Perhaps it was the same joke, in which case it certainly wasn't mocking the medical condition of her son but her making money from it.
Which in my mind are two separate things.
